The Science of Becoming Happier

“The only difference between screwing around and science, is writing it down.” — Adam Savage

2015 is drawing to a close, and I will be thirty-six years old, or young, by the start of the new year. As a retrospect of the past year of 2015, or for the matter, how do I know if I am better today compared to 5 or even 10 years ago?

This question was staring me at my face as I started my journey to be committed to my best life possible. This question was on page 44 of The Five-Minute Journal.

“You don’t, unless you’re keeping track.” — The Five-Minute Journal

The truth is, I am not a person that likes to write journals, hence the habit never quite stuck with me. But as I got older, I often ponder how much have I actually grown as a person, in relation to my girth? I realised that I do not have the answer for the former, although my tape measure has shown me the answer to the latter.

For my journey to becoming happier, I am committing myself to write in the Five-Minute Journal everyday, in the morning and evening. I am committing to my best life consciously; to create more abundance in my life; time to give more gratitude.

What are you committing to in the new year?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
